The men in our family have all missed their calling. They should start a catering business. #2 Son has a way with veggies.
#1 Son is the master of meats and all things grilled.
Son in Law is an accomplished pastry chef. The ladies never have to lift a finger to get food on the table around here on the holidays.
Our Star Spangled Baby decided to stay put for the 4th. Mom to be is ready. Really ready.
The soon to be big brother could care less. He just wants his trains.
This is Alexa. She is #1 Son's new toy. I love her. On voice command she can give news, weather and traffic reports. She can play any music you subscribe to and read your Audible books to you. She is Amazon's new baby and I love her. I want one. As soon as they are back in stock, Alexa's twin sister will be sitting on my counter, too.
De Ronde van Frankrijk. That's how you say the Tour de France in Dutch. They are starting off in the city of Utrecht, in the Netherlands, with an individual time trail today. I'm ready. At the last minute, I managed to finish the Jacob for my in-progress vest and to get some leftover Merino singles plied.
I needed to free up some bobbins.. I'll have all three wheels going so I'll need them all eventually.
I still have a couple of old things that need of be finished. This is the second bobbin of the mystery braid I started a few weeks ago. From looking at my Etsy account, I did discover it's actually Punta wool, whatever that is. I hope to make short work of it so I can move on.
This is a very old project I hope to finish in the 3,360 kilometres the riders will cover. On July 26th the riders that are left will be heading into Paris and I, hopefully will be adding a new skein or two to the already too full handspun bin.
The soap bin is also overflowing but I couldn't resist making something for the holiday.
They smell like apple pie. Mmmmm. We won't be having any pie today but I do have a watermelon waiting.
Gelukkig (Happy) 4th!
